New Guy + Sesame Seeds
Posted 04 September 2005 - 07:20 PM
So looks like I have celiac disease, just got the anti-body test results recently. Still have the biopsy to go, but I 'feel' that celiac disease is whats wrong with me. Anyways, just wanted to say hi. In some ways I releived to have found something to point to, in some ways I'm just mad that it took 25 yrs of my life to figure out ...
I also had a quick question ... has any one heard of sesame seeds helping with celiac disease? I've been eating some mediterranean food recently, and have felt much better ... I think I've id'd tahini sauce (made from sesame seeds) as the saviour ... I've always felt some issues with a wierd, hard to define deficiency with my thinking ability (I have had periods of poor balance etc), and eating the mediterranean food has helped out ... the sesame seeds are rich in B vitamins, which I believe help the nerves/brain ... I dont know, frankly I dont have much faith in doctors helping me out .... would appreciate any input ...

I'm not sure if sesame seeds do all that ... I tend to eat a lot of them as well. I do know that they are gluten free and tasty, which are both a good thing
The problem with the thinking ability is common amoung Celiacs whom for one reason or another get into gluten. Perhaps the times when you are thinking clearly and feeling better, are the days when you just happen to be completely gluten free. Also, you are right about the B vitamins helping with many problems, and if you have been on gluten, then you likely haven't been absorbing enough of them. The sesame would certainly help with that.
Feel free to ask any questions in this forum, someone can usually come up with an answer. And no question is too embarrassing, or personal.
